Golden amber color with an off white head that is huge and foamy. Very hoppy aroma with some malty notes. Hoppy flavor with some floral notes and a little sweetness. Good beer that is very balanced. Dry finish.

Bottle & tap: The staple product of Boston Beer Co. A beer everyone in the states has probably seen or had at some point. Even with its wide distribution and macro-brewed status, this beer manages to taste better than average consistently. Dark amber/copper appearance in the glass with a frothy white head. Toasted malt, caramel and floral hops dominate the aroma, while the taste has sweet malt and bitter hops balance with a slight yeast flavor. Finishes crisp and dry.

Best American lager you can buy, bar none. Nice dark amber color, reminds you you’re not drinking a normal north american lager. Hard NOT to like this beer.

Pours amber with a small head. Light hops, decent smoothness. Slight malty taste. Average stuff. Overrated if you ask me.

Clear reddish copper color with little head (as served). Nice malty aroma, toasted and caramel, with a floral/earthy hop aroma. Nicely bitter flavor, with sweet malt balance, some hop flavor but not much and a touch of yeast. Good clean & dry finish. A good beer that that I can count on when I’m in a craft beer oasis.

This has a nice golden look with an ok white frothy head. Not much for aroma but it has something other than an alcohol smell (ie bud’s smell). It has a great freshing taste that I enjoy when I just feel like putting back some cold ones with BBQ. It is by far the best beer that is widely sold on tap.

Very good social beer. You have a Sam Adams in your hand and you’re somebody. A little sweet. Has a dryness that leaves you thirsty for more.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2004 Samuel Adams...always a good decision. I have had a lot of this beer, and it is great beer to get drunk on. Not too harsh, but has enough taste to keep your interest. Dry finish that leaves you wanting more. Goes well with a variety of foods. Probably the best beer that is available pretty much everywhere.
